Reps Urge FG to complete Ondo Power Project

The House of Representatives on Tuesday
mandated its Committee on Power to liaise with the Federal Ministry of Power to take necessary steps towards the immediate completion of the Okeigbo – Igbo Olodumare Power Project in Ile Oluji/ Okeigbo Local Government Area of Ondo State.

The House passed the resolution sequel to the consideration of a motion to that effect during plenary.

The motion was titled ‘ The Need for Immediate Completion of the Okeigbo – Igbo Olodumare Power Project in Ile Oluji/ Okeigbo Local Government Area of Ondo State Area of Ondo State”.

It was sponsored by Hon. Ayodele Adefiranye, an All Progressives Congress member representing Ileoluji/Okeigbo and Odigbo federal constituency

Adefiranye noted that sometime in 2005, the Federal Government embarked on a power plant project Okeigbo–Ajejigi–Kajola Bolorunduro– Awopeju–Orisunmibare Camp–Okealafia–Igbo Olodumare in Ile Oluji/Okeigbo Local Government Area of Ondo State against the backdrop of the persistent poor power supply to the area.

He further noted that the project advanced with installation of various equipment, including six 500kv transformers installed at different locations, installation of concrete electric poles across the communities as well as high tension wire in almost all the project locations.

The lawmaker expressed concern that “the project has become one of the abandoned projects in the country as no effort has been made to complete it in line with the laudable intentions of the government, eighteen years after
initiating it”.

The lawmaker said completing the Okeigbo power project would boost production activities and economic development.
